1 Corinthians 11 Paul, called to be an apostle of Yeshua the Messiah through the will of God, and our brother Sosthenes, 2 to the congregation of God which is at Corinth; those who are sanctified in Messiah Yeshua, called to be saints, with all who call on the name of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah in every place, both theirs and ours: 3 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Yeshua the Messiah.
4 I always thank my God concerning you, for the grace of God which was given you in Messiah Yeshua; 5 that in everything you were enriched in him, in all speech and all knowledge; 6 even as the testimony of Messiah was confirmed in you: 7 so that you come behind in no gift; waiting for the revelation of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah; 8 who will also confirm you until the end, blameless in the day of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah. 9 God is faithful, through whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Yeshua the Messiah, our Lord. 10 Now I beg you, brothers, through the name of our Lord, Yeshua the Messiah, that you all speak the same thing and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfected together in the same mind and in the same judgment. 11 For it has been reported to me concerning you, my brothers, by those who are from Chloe's household, that there are contentions among you. 12 Now I mean this, that each one of you says, "I follow Paul," "I follow Apollos," "I follow Cephas," and, "I follow Messiah." 13 Is Messiah divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized into the name of Paul? 14 I thank God that I baptized none of you, except Crispus and Gaius, 15 so that no one should say that you had been baptized ▼
▼ NU Vg. M TR read "that I had baptized you" instead of "you had been baptized"into my own name. 16 (I also baptized the household of Stephanas; besides them, I do not know whether I baptized any other.) 17 For Messiah sent me not to baptize, but to proclaim the Good News-not in wisdom of words, so that the cross of Messiah would not be made void. 18 For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are dying, but to us who are saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written,
"I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,
I will bring the discernment of the discerning to nothing." ▼
▼ Isaiah 29:14
20 Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the Law scholar of this world? Hasn't God made foolish the wisdom of this world? 21 For seeing that in the wisdom of God, the world through its wisdom did not know God, it was God's good pleasure through the foolishness of the proclaiming to save those who believe. 22 For Jews ask for signs, Greeks seek after wisdom, 23 but we proclaim Messiah crucified; a stumbling block to Jews, and foolishness to Gentiles ▼
▼ NU P Vg. M TR read "Greeks" instead of "Gentiles", 24 but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Messiah is the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men. 26 For you see your calling, brothers, that not many are wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, and not many noble; 27 but God chose the foolish things of the world that he might put to shame those who are wise. God chose the weak things of the world, that he might put to shame the things that are strong; 28 and God chose the lowly things of the world, and the things that are despised, and the things that are not, that he might bring to nothing the things that are: 29 that no flesh should boast before God. 30 But of him, you are in Messiah Yeshua, who was made to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption: 31 that, according as it is written, "He who boasts, let him boast in the Lord." ▼
▼ Jeremiah 9:24
